The U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's signature health care law, including the indiviual mandate, which requires adults to purchase health insurance.
The court ruled 5-4 in favor of upholding the law. The court ruled that the individual mandate law is constitutional not under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, but under Congress' powers of taxation.
The liberal bloc of the court — Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Baider Guinsberg, Stephen Breyer — was joined with the more conservative Chief Justice John Roberts in the majority.
